On a warm October evening in Idaho this surprise engagement dinner party came to life. A talented team of vendors came together to create a romantic atmosphere that was inviting and full of vibrant autumn colors.
From start to finish the decor is darling and the food selections look delicious! Honalee Farm was the perfect venue to create a crisp, clean, and warm atmosphere. Do yourself a favor and indulge in all the beauty this shoots offers, found in the full gallery here, wonderfully captured by Raft Media Photography.

The evening began at the rustic wine and hors d'oeuvres bar. Creatively made from two wine barrels and an antique door provided by Blush Creek vintage rentals, it made the perfect conversation piece. The bar was adorned with a mouth-watering selection of bread loaves, artisan cheese, veggies, and even chocolate drizzled bacon that were created by 3 Girls Catering. The lounge served as the perfect backdrop to sip local beer and wine and was complete with a vintage upholstered sofa, teal colored settee, and pink velvet backed chairs. An antique railroad cart was filled with milk-glass vases of varying heights and bright contrasting blooms.

a perfect fall feast

Golden light spilled through an enormous tree where a sparkling chandelier hung from one of the branches. Nestled underneath was where dinner was served at a long white farm table surrounded by mismatched wood chairs. Katie from Peace of Mind Event Planning used accents of mercury to style the tablescape which complimented the bouquets of bright blooms perfectly. Prime rib, lamb lollipops, and stuffed pumpkin contributed to the delicious feast.

use grapevine to decorate

A gorgeous white vanity featured an array of tantalizing desserts including seasonal favorites such as caramel apples. Flowers peeked out of the drawers offering brilliant pops of color. Dried grapevine climbing a shabby white fireplace mantel served as a stunning display for the surprise proposal. Matt from Edwards Greenhouse designed stunning floral arrangements with shades of aqua blue, deep fiery red, and sunset orange that were used throughout the venue.
